What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for an open gas station close to your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you get your car. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank and return the car with an empty tank. Many suppliers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to get some gas before you go on a long trip|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, find a filling station before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Trondheim?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you decide to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Trondheim. You can cruise as much as you like without incurring added charges. Review your rental agreement to find out if there are any restrictions.
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the rental lot. It's important to:
- Check out your car and make sure there is no dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new area
